AllMusic Review by

This somewhat obscure Herb Ellis LP (the fifth and final one that the guitarist led for Verve) is a relaxed affair. Joined by vibraphonist Victor Feldman, bassist Leroy Vinnegar and drummer Ronnie Zito, Ellis swings lightly and easily on such songs as "One Note Samba" (which had not become a bossa nova standard yet), "Like Someone in Love," "John Brown's Body" and Ray Brown's "Gravy Waltz."
